As the Indiana Pacers continue to push forward through training camp and the NBA preseason, they also have proved themselves to once again be true partners with their fellow teams and community. The Pacers have been making the rounds in and around Indianapolis, doing all kinds of good things for their city.
Earlier this week, several of the Pacers made appearances at local grocery stores, signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. Some of the Pacers players even took time out to bag a few groceries for some lucky patrons. The next day, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, some of the Pacers invited fans out to receive free tickets to the Indiana Fever, WNBA Finals game on Friday night. Danny Granger, Paul George, George Hill, and head coach Frank Vogel got together to purchase and give away 4,000 tickets to the Fever game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Pacers even had coffee and donuts provided for the first 100 fans who showed up.
Charitable actions such as these are not foreign for the Indiana Pacers franchise. This team has recently been seen around town buying and pumping gas at local area gas stations. Granger also purchased 1,000 tickets himself for fans to another recent Indiana Fever playoff game.
This team has endeared themselves to this community both on and off the court, and all indications should prove that the community will return the favor during this upcoming season. The Indiana Pacers have came out for their fans, now the fans should show up for the Pacers.
